Woodstone Creek Whiskey Barrel Bierschnaaps, 47%

Price: $61.00 Issue: Winter 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Woodstone's using a local brewer's beer as the basis for this one. Intriguing nose: grainy, sweet, but also a bit green/herbaceous. That's quite tasty! The malt comes through broad and sweet, the herbal character floats over the top and perks up the taste buds, almost like a digestif. The finish is tinged with honey and herbs, but dries up nicely. Smooth for the proof, too.
